Twelve episodes plus a one-off teaser - The Daleks' Master Plan was a monster. Probably the ultimate folly of the Hartnell years, the story somehow manages to maintain an epic quality while remaining firmly grounded in soap opera drama. But make no mistake, the story is a masterpiece.

Better still, the audio restoration and linking voice-over, read by Peter Purves, are nothing short of fantastic which helps to recreate some of the original charm of the story first broadcast in late 1965.

But unlike previous BBC audio releases of Dr Who stories these CDs contain a little something extra. The first disc, Mission to the Unknown, also holds MP3 files of each episode without the linking narrative as well as some 'before and after' snatches of audio showing how the off-air tapes were cleaned up for this release. A simply fantastic feat of audio engineering by restorer Mark Ayres.

The CD release of The Daleks' Master Plan is nothing short of magnificent - go buy it now.
